Piedpiper

Objective

Rodents have always been a risk to mankind. Rats and mice carry over 70 diseases that can be transmitted to humans, they also cause economic damage to crops, buildings and infrastructure that runs into billions of Euro’s per year. The rat population of the world is expanding rapidly and our current control systems are just not effective. All of the current electro mechanical devices have a carbon footprint with daily visits to remove dead animals and rest / re bait them. The toxins (eg warfarin) also require frequent visits to check on consumption and to re-bait.There is therefore a global need for a reliable, effective, safe, robust, economic pest control device.
Through the integration of new technologies proposed in part by the 4 participating SME organisations and with outsourced research capacity of European leading RTD performers, The PIED PIPER project aims to develop a new generation pest control device that will overcome the limitation of existing approaches in an environmentally, cost effective manner.
